CD 211 BROOKFIELD Green Aqua; "No leak"!

CD 211 BROOKFIELD (glass insulator) Color: Green Aqua Description: Base chip, inner skirt chip, the rest is about VNM. This "no-leak" insulator, in conjunction with the liner (missing), was designed to prevent dirt and moisture, which would increase leakage from the line wire to the pin. An elongated bubble in the center adds a little character! (#7174)

CD 164 MAYDWELL-20, White Milk w/ Butterscotch Swirls; uncommon color variant

CD 164 MAYDWELL-20 (glass insulator) Color: White Milk w/ Butterscotch Swirls Description: Mint. Most of the white milk MAYDWELL-20's are pure white in color or have a very slight tint such as lot 64. This one is quite unusual in that it has strong butterscotch swirls, giving it more of an overall yellowish color. Contrast this with the pure white lot 62 and you can see a significant difference! Quite an unusual and uncommon variant!
